  1. The real question is why are we only hearing about this now? The incident happened six weeks ago! Can't believe it takes the police this long to close an animal cruelty investigation...

    Routine police work combined with a severity of crime priority hierarchy with a dash of celebrity to complicate things. 6 weeks is not an absurd timeframe, especially when there was no causal connection between the suspect and the crime aside from the testimony of one witness.

  2. saw the attached image from the Falcaholic website. For some reason I cannot post it in here.

    If I am reading lines 3, 4 and 5 correctly.......the woman and Shembo "spent time" together. THEN, the lady went to look for the dog.

    It's hard to get your business on and kill a dog at the same time....but I could be wrong.

    Also see line 6...it looks like Shembo's dog destroyed hers while both were in the same crate and she's pissed and now blaming it on him.


    I'm not saying he is innocent or guilty, but I would like to hear more about what happened before calling the guy a monster. The police report is basically an ex-girlfriend painting a sad story about her dog dying and then claiming her ex admitted to her he did it over the phone.

    It could be true, it could be false, or it could be somewhere in the middle. I am going to reserve judgement until more facts come out.

    That being said, if it can be shown that he did kick that dog, or do anything to harm it that lead to it's death, ban him from the league and I hope he does the max.

  3. Most people have ignored my posts because they already know I like Ryan okay. Just not a fan of QB craze. I think QB's are sometimes VASTLY overrated. I REALLY hate the so-called franchise QB's. More a fan of game managers. wink.png

    I know you don't hate Ryan, but sometimes I think you may go a bit too contrarian when you are the only voice with a different pitch in a thread ;)

  4. He isn't great, but he's not bad like some are saying. You don't have to scare anyone with your arm, but he's scary to play against on Sundays. Now he has Reggie Bush, Mike Davis, Carlos Hyde, Boldin, Torrey Smith, Blake Bell, and Vern. I won't be underestimating him too soon. He will have to be worse than these guys pretend he is.

    Everyone can have their opinions, and I am not a pro at scouting players, but watching him blow reads, make awful throws on a consistent basis, and show his own frustration on the field on a regular basis tends to make me think he isn't even average.

    The niner's passing attack is anemic, and a lot of that rests on Kaep's shoulders.

  5. No, I don't think it doesn't take any talent. There are plenty of QBs who are known for their running ability that I absolutely love. Wilson is probably my favorite QB out there next to Matt. He is among many that I like who run the ball very well. Kaepernick on the other hand is just garbage in my personal opinion. He is fast and that is about it.

    I get to watch all the niner's local games. Kap is a good QB in every respect except reading the defense and throwing the ball. Other than that, he's awesome.

  6. I'd argue that Matt is better than Big Ben, Luck, Rivers, and Romo as well. Long term, I think Luck will be better, but put Matt behind the Dallas OL, and the media would anoint him the next Peyton Manning.

    I 100% agree with you, but I can at least see the debate with those guys (except Romo). The guys in the 2nd tier are all obviously inferior to me which is why I limited my critique.

    In the end though, who cares. Guy got a tainted ring as a backup QB for a tainted franchise. His opinion and a dollar will get you a bus ride home.

  7. Ummmm...can't get with you there, but I understand what you're saying.

    Like I said, everyone is entitled to be wrong if they choose. tongue.png

    But seriously, which of the tier 2 QB's would you take over Ryan, all other things being equal? I would take Eli, Flacco and Wilson's rings, but I think Ryan would make each of their teams better were their roles reversed. Nobody else on that list excites me at all.

  8. You need to ban these trolls following me. They spamming me with weird bug pics. That Gaucho guy and that other troll Falcan Moore.

    Perhaps if you don't want to be mocked, you shouldn't start threads making declaratory statements, then make bets about how confident you are in your own correctness, then stick your head in the ground like an ostrich when you are wrong. You only have to do one thing to stop being mocked: stand by your word. See below for an example of how to do that.

    Bawse, please post the sig you would like me to use for a month. I bet you that Gurley wouldn't go in the top 15, and I was wrong.

  9. Most are just enjoying themselves. There's like 3 or 4 posters that just seem to be on a mission to ruin it for everybody. dry.png

    Between FFS70's predictable complaint thread and the great bet welching of 2015, I am enjoying my distraction on the boards today...

    Tomorrow is back to the grind, but at least a couple posters are putting on their clown makeup today and entertaining the rest of us tonight.
